L.A. Kitchen is thrilled to work with Starfish Impact as we launch our dynamic new social business. Marta’s team is wildly professional and super connected, and we’ve seen immediate results since we began working with them. Many talk, few deliver….Starfish Impact delivers!!!

Robert EggerFounder & CEO, L.A. Kitchen

Marta and her team at Starfish Impact have taken our organization to a whole new level. Marta’s guidance and expertise have allowed our small, growing organization to establish solid roots and flourish. I feel like I can reach out to Marta for advice on anything…grant research and writing, board development, governance, and more. Since teaming up with Starfish Impact in late 2013, we have secured multiple grants, built solid relationships with foundations and developed a growing network of supporters throughout the community.  Our organization would not be where it is today without the invaluable support of Marta and her team!

New Horizons hired Starfish Impact to create a Major Gifts Strategic Plan for the first time in the organization’s 60 year history.  The team delivered a comprehensive narrative plan and numerous attachments providing a Major Gifts road map for New Horizons. We were so impressed we hired Starfish Impact again to execute the plan. Marta, Faye, and Adrienne are strategic additions to New Horizons and provide a unique compliment to our organization bringing an outside perspective to our organization. Starfish Impact’s team approach is a bonus as we get more than one talented brain working on our behalf.
